Flaps with adequate blood supply are the best methods for covering the radiation ulcer defect. Our report is on the lateral intercostal artery perforator-based reversed thoracodorsal artery (TA) flap for a patient whom had a large radiation ulcer on his lower back. When the flap was elevated, we could use an infrared imaging device to confirm the location of the perforators and demonstrate the communication with the TA. The communication between the main TA and the lateral intercostal artery perforator has previously not been reported in the literature in detail. We used an indocyanine green dye and infrared imaging device to seek out the perforators and their communication. Even in a small communication, we were able to use the device to check the perforators and to elevate this flap more assuredly without having to be concerned of further radiation.
